Manufacturers do not bother to adjust the numbers for different plastic grades either. If they did, it would likely remedy lots of headaches.

Underworld. They seem to be a more consistent, less nose angle sensitive understable driver to me compared to the River. But they still have that Swedish Elf Magic glide.

Inbounds?! well... I hear you but not sure you are any safer there

Lol. The best flight numbers are taking a disc to a field and throwing.

Underworlds are much less stable than Rivers.

A 169 or less is flippy right off the shelf.

DD Witness is also quite understable.

FDs are not flippy at all, at least in C-line.

LOL river and Eagle X? What a joke!

BTW star Leos are excellent for turnovers when they wear in a bit.
